From 23.00 tonight I noticed a lot of traffic noise outside, its usually dead as a dodo, initially I thought being a jour férié it may have been people returning home, their might have been a big public gathering (unlikely) then I saw the same vehicles & motorbikes going past multiple times. I went out scouting and found a rodéo going on not 500m up the road in the Airbus carpark, bottle cans & rubbish strewn everywhere & KéKé's lounging around everywhere.

I phoned the Gendarmerie and they said they would send someone out, I think they have arrived because the vehicles are all going one way now and relatively slowly.

TBH it was a dissapointment, only a few were bahaving like hoons & making the most of the echos from the building opposite, the reason it took so long for me to realise is that most looked like they were driving to church and obeying the speed limit.

What is the youth of today coming to :roll:

The last one which was motorbikes only & was happening every sunday afternoon in the summer of 2018 I unintentionally broke up single handed, my car got vandalised in the unwanted confrontation (they blocked the road when I was taking photos but they must have been so scared of the consequences of their bravado that they were never seen again, and it was a hundred or so of them.

Its been happening a lot all over since the confinement and the closure of the boîtes de nuit, raves, rodéos etc.

Rodeos? How did they get on with the riding bulls and unbroken horses then?
